Li'l Cabin in the Woods
Great aesthetics. Like a cabin in the woods. Nice and quiet. Clean for the most part but the floor didn't feel like it was mopped. It felt grainy and dirty on my bare feet. When wiped with a white towel, it left a lot of black residue. I WOULD stay here again though. That detail would enhance the overall impression though.

Expensive motel 6
Noisy neighbors, hot room even when just 75 degrees outside, microwave didn’t work well, step up to main seating area/bathroom hazardous at night, outside light on all night interferes with sleep even when shutters are closed. Carmel cost, cheap motel vibe. Is that enough?

The maid service was excellent. The location was easy to go into carmel and also get back on hwy 1. The front desk seemed to not be completely informed as to what they had or could provide.
